Holy Cross Athletics   01-24-2019

WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross women’s lacrosse senior attacker Keely Connors has been named to the Preseason All-Patriot League Team, as voted on by the conference’s coaches and media relations contacts. This is the second league honor Connors has received, after being named to the All-Patriot League first team at the conclusion of the 2018 season.

 

Connors returns to the field for her senior campaign after a breakthrough junior season, more than quadrupling her point total from the 2017 season. The attacker led the Crusaders in goals, with 37 in 18 games played, and captured the all-time single season draw control record at Holy Cross with 93. She added 23 ground balls and 11 caused turnovers.

 

In the 2018 season, Connors finished second in the league in draw controls per game (5.17) and free-position goals (18). Connors earned All-Patriot League first team honors, marking the first Crusader to do so since 2015.

 

Connors has played in 49 games for the Crusaders, amassing 53 goals and 10 assists for 63 career points. She has recorded 133 draw controls, placing her third on the all-time draw career draw control list at Holy Cross.
